I’m sorry the pictures aren’t better…I was having camera issues.  Maybe I need a new one!  What a thought!

The Saturday Showcases were amazing!  What a group of entertainers we have in this organization!  Incredible! It was a truly a delight and I sat there most of the day!  What a thrill!  Thank you all for sharing your talent!

Beyond The Divide – James Michael

The reason I love this Western Music DJ job so much is all the wonderful folks I get to know.  Joe Baker introduced me to James Michael at the WMA Festival in Albuquerque in 2008.  He lives in Las Cruces, just 60 miles away so I get to take advantage of him occasionally with radio interviews, house concerts and such.  It’s fun!  And he is such a nice guy!  It’s such fun to make new friends!

James Michael’s new CD, “Borrowed Time” is wonderful!  The title song about an old mare that raised his kids is beautiful and brings back a lot of memories of Sonny, the old gelding that raised me. “Frank” is about a guy in his 50s that wanted to do something for his country after 9-11!  It’s an amazing story about an amazing man!  Most of the songs are written by a guy by the name of Mike Hosea…and he wrote them quite well!  LOL!  There is also a song written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney??? (Well know Western Music writers, no doubt!)  James does a wonderful job with “Rocky Raccoon!”  And also Jon Messenger’s “Old Peloncillos.”  That’s a great song Jon!  Of course part of the reason I love it so much is because I grew up in the Animas Valley and had a great view of the Peloncillos! Beautiful mountains!

Also on the CD are “Serenade Of The Bells” written by Twomey, Goodheart and Urbano, “Hour Before Dawn” by Buffham and Ley, “Blue Mountain” by Keller, “Moonshine Steer” by Gardner and “My Cathedral” by Pat Twitty.  That song brings memories of my dad.  His feelings exactly.   James is joined on the CD by musicians Call Of The WestJeanne Cahill (playing whatever she wants to and singing harmony)  and Jerome Campbell (lead and rhythm guitar and harmony vocals). Alison Reynolds (cello), Gordon Butler (violin) and Roy Garcia (steel guitar.)

James Michael spends most of his time at the WMA Showcase and Awards Show working with kids in the Junior WMA.  In 2011 I attended the Showcase where the kids presented their show and what a show it was!  Good for you James!!!  Check out the website http://jamesmichaelmusic.com to find out more about James Michael and to purchase this wonderful CD! You’ll be glad you did!!!
